A long drive through sandy, sometimes rutted bush roads, leads to the western tip of Magnetic Island, a small island off the Queensland north coast.
West Point is a sought after location on the island in which to watch the sun set over the strip of water between the island and the Australian mainland.
We gathered with backpackers and locals keen to bask in the last light of the day and watch it sink out of sight. One of the delightful additions was the spectacular light that lit up the sand making it gleam a ruby red. The sand rivulets are actually made by what appeared to be fresh water bubbling up through the sand from inland and seeping back into the ocean.
